~ Love Life ~


“Don’t be gloomy. Do not dwell on unkind things. Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. Even if you are not happy, put a smile on your face. ‘Accentuate the positive.’ Look a little deeper for the good. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life.”

–Gordon B. Hinckley

Hot Air Balloons?

Did anybody notice that there was no post for the 4th of July Balloon Festival?


Well, that, my friends is because we were totally ready to go at 5:30 am but when we arrived at the field…


all the people and cars were going the other direction.


Apparently, there was too much cloud cover and too much wind so the whole darn shootin’ match was canceled and everyone was heading back home.


Which pretty much means that this year the Hot Air Balloon Festival was just, you know….


Yeah, I crack myself up.


Luckily, even in a dreadful crisis such as this, we still know how to behave.

It was a good day.


~Be Brave~

I remember telling my babies to “be brave, and it will be all right.” Maybe that’s just the advice we all need these days.
